A travel enthusiast and an employee with Finolex cables, Amey Naik started writing when he was in 9th standard. His first literary publication, ‘Mog.com’, which also won the Yuva Puraskar Award was published by Goa Konkani Academy . Amey writes in the language that he thinks in – his mother tongue Konkani. Although he learnt Marathi he never tried writing in Marathi. Amey believes that poetry comes naturally to him and doesn’t compromise on poetry due to his work. With the Yuva Puraskar award, he thinks his responsibility towards literature has increased and he needs to continue evolving as a writer.
